Sharing best practices and supporting critical awareness on themes connected with workers’ rights is part of our commitment for a more socially sustainable society.
Therefore, we would like to invite labour law experts to send us their contributions, in the form of a brief reflection on labour law–related matters.

In particular, we have identified the following themes on which we would like to receive contributions:

  • New Forms of Work : problematic aspects and prospective solutions concerning labour law protection to workers in atypical forms of work and platform work, from a Judicial Approach (court’s rulings on those issues) or a Trade Unions’ Approach (trade unions’ initiatives in support of workers’ positions in relation to those issues);
  • “Old” problems, new challenges:  aspects such as non-discrimination, anti-union behavior, health and safety, fair pay, business restructurings, posting of workers, information and consultation rights, etcetera, where the worker’s protection (still) falls short. Also in this case, we invite a focus on a Judicial Approach (court’s rulings which have dealt with such issues and may be considered as best practices)  or  on a Trade Unions’ Approach (trade unions’ initiatives in support of workers’ positions in relation to those issues);
  • EU and national law: reflection on developments in EU and nationa labour law and social policy, also in a comparative perspective.

The contributions that we receive will be posted on the website and included in our newsletter. We reserve the right not to share a contribution that does not reflect the spirit of the Network.
The length of the contribution should be between 600 and 2.000 words and they should be written in English or French.
Please send your contribution by email to s.rainone@uvt.nl , and indicate “ELW Network Contribution” in the title.

 Thank you!
